Engaging Minds, Transforming Lives

You Plan the Trip, We’ll Plan the Visit
Individual Day And Overnight Options

What is life here really like?  A college visit is a chance to test-drive Southwestern: you might attend a class, talk with current students, meet with a professor, coach or admission counselor, or even stay overnight in a residence hall.  The Office of Admission will make all the arrangements for your visit to Southwestern.

During the school year, you may schedule visits Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays at 10 a.m. Saturday visits are only available from September through April.  To schedule an individual visit to campus, you may use the forms linked below or call the Office of Admission at 800-252-3166.
